Every time I download something in Chrome it goes to a folder that is not convenient to me so how can change it to a folder of my choosing?

Do you want a different default folder or a custom folder for each download? – JW8 Sep 20 '12 at 0:23

Check under the Wrench icon / Settings / Show advanced settings / Downloads section, where you can either set a default download location, or have the browser prompt you for a location every single time. More details here.
